Death Impends

Inverse Dead Pool 2019

Recommended Posts

It's been so long that before I arose from bed I was thinking of posting some modified Kinks lyrics: "So tired/Tired of Waiting/Tired of Waiting for You-oo-oo".

I did a regular expression search on my lists stored on my laptop and found Ms Day at number two on my list and thought 'oh no!' and, remember it's early where I am, went to deathlist.net, looked at the scoreboard and thought "whew! this must be one of several I didn't submit for 2019..."

 

then I blinked and read the word 'Survivor'...

Everybody loves a leaver. Doris Day's a leaver, but not everyone loves her. Those who thought she'd see another year are in fact quite frustrated with her, and no amount of Pillow Talk can placate them. Whatever will be, will be, and this will be the scoreboard:

Tim Conway has gone 'way. 13 teams unwisely thought the Oldest Man would survive the year, and are now seeing themselves barnacled by Ensign's parking. In just two days we've gone from 41 clean sheets to a mere 2!

Bob's late-year Hawke-ing over his unlikelihood to see the next Australian elections meant most teams steered clear of him in the Inverse Dead Pool. 10 teams were still willing to bet he wouldn't go Down Under this year, and are now hoping the rest of their picks will put in the extra Labor to survive.

Beth, what can I do? See myself fall down the scoreboard, that's what. Indeed, nearly half of the participants are affected by Beth Chapman going tits up, and even those that doggedly hung on to zero points for nearly half the year have been afflicted, causing drol to become the new leader.

The 19 teams who didn't see John McCririck as a dead cert for the year ended up walking straight into a booby trap. drol remains in the lead, but still a ways to go until the finish line...

Whilst joint second is a good place to be. There are a number of my selections who are causing me concern. George Aligiah at position 2 is the main one.

Why would you Be the least concern for him?  Biggest bust pick of my DDP team, and I just punted Turnbull off another DP..  I hope you’re right, I don’t see a basis for it is all.
